Japan Underground February 2011 Tour Dates

Date: Wednesday 29th December 2010 [13:07] | Posted By: Joe

UK fans of Japanese music will be pleased to hear that the good people at Japan Underground have announced the February 2011 tour dates for their club nights. London, Birmingham, Brighton and Nottingham are all set to for nights fun, music karaoke and Harajuku fashion.

They've also got a pre-tour party in London on Tuesday 11th January 2011.
Full Story
Press release as follows:

The UK's exclusive Japanese music club night returns, bringing the finest and most exciting rock, pop and dance tunes of Japan to the cities of London, Birmingham, Brighton and Nottingham this February. Plus, expect authentic karaoke, Harajuku fashion and the first overseas performance from Tokyo's urban techno-punk act Hibari!

After its huge success in London, which saw partygoers as far away as Newcastle attend, and the event being listed in the top 365 things to do before you die, word soon spread of Japan Underground across the British Isles and its Facebook page was inundated with requests to bring the J-themed mayhem to other cities.

Live music will be provided by the electric Hibari, a Japanese double act that captures the energy of Tokyo's famous street performers and delivers it with the punk-rock attitude rarely found in a country that lives by the proverb 'the nail that sticks out will be hammered down'. Clad in tattoos and piercings, non-conformist Tsutomo (Hibari's vocalist) refuses to be hammered down and is the epitome of everything the country's officials fear from its ever growing, rebellious alternative youth.

Previously the tunes were supplied by Japanophile, radio DJ and all-round top fella Iain Lee. This time Japanese music journalist Tom Smith will be providing the tracks, incorporating the likes of Mad Capsule Markets, Dir en Grey and Polysics, as well as gaming remixes and pop tracks from Hikaru Utada, T.M. Revolution, Arashi and many more.

What are you waiting for? Go grab your tickets now and get ready to party, Japanese style!

PRE-TOUR PARTY:

Come and celebrate with us at On Board Karaoke (map), perhaps London's most authentic karaoke joint! We'll be taking over the venue on 11th of January 2011 from 9pm-1am for 4 hours of drinks, laughs and dodgy singing! All for a mere 10! Tickets are available here, groups are more than welcome! We'll be getting the drinks in at The Prince of Teck pub opposite from 7pm all welcome!
